Nestled in the heart of the Annapolis Valley, L'Arche Homefires is a sign of hope, providing support and opportunities to share life with adults with developmental disabilities.
L'ARCHE Homefires is one of the largest employers in Wolfville
L'ARCHE Homefires was established in Wolfville in 1981, when John MacNeil, Keith Strong, and Debra and Jeff Moore began to share life together. What began with one family is now a thriving community serving people with disabilities in five homes, an independent Living Support Program, and three day programs. Community members live together in mutually supportive relationships and are an active force in society, participating in every aspect of life - employment, local theatre, church, farmer's markets, service clubs and local politics.
L'ARCHE Homefires is about providing a caring place to live and work, It's also about:
Giving people with disabilities a meaningful daily existence and the dignity and self-worth that comes with doing a good job;
Taking care of people in their retirement, to develop a sense of respect and belonging;
Supporting our aging members and enabling their gifts to continue to be shared with all;
Providing meaningful work to new high school graduates and to those who, because of their disabilities, require extra support.
